Description
Students will be able to apply this knowledge specifically to their teaching practice as they begin their field experiences. We will critically engage in understanding the complex factors that impact education in the United States today, with an emphasis on Urban Education. A review of past teaching policies and practices will support a better understanding of the American schooling system in the 21st Century. In the Teaching Globally and Locally in a Diverse World class pre-service teachers will: (a) discuss strategies for teaching all children in a responsive, equitable manner , (b) learn to analyze the effects that marginalization has on children, (c) investigate the impact that race, culture, and socioeconomic status have on a child's education, and (d) review school reform and policy practices that have created various types of schools available to students in the United States. Knowing that the landscape of education is changing in the United States we will discuss the globalization of schooling in our society, along with the need for a higher technological understanding to prepare children for success in today's world.
